Dutch Style Gatherings and An Ongoing Creative Food Collaboration Shared in Community Around a Table
Supper: an evening meal, typically a light or informal one.
Typically the last meal of the day.
According to; author; BRITTANY GIBSON the terms “supper” and “dinner” can be used pretty interchangeably, but “dinner” is typically used more often. Regardless, if someone says one or the other, most people will know they’re referring to the last meal of the day. But we came across some shocking news: they’re not the same thing after all—and if your grandparents or parents used the term “supper,” there’s a good chance your ancestors were farmers.
“[In the 18th and early 19th centuries,] Americans regularly ate a light supper as their evening meal because they were eating dinner—the biggest meal of the day—around noon,” food historian Helen Zoe Veit told NPR. The purpose of eating their biggest meal at noontime was so farmers would have more strength and energy to get through the rest of their workday, according to the English Language & Usage Stack Exchange. Dictionary.com confirms, “dinner” doesn’t necessarily refer to a specific time of day. It simply means the main meal of the day. “Supper,” however, stems from the Old French word “souper,” meaning “evening meal.”
Club: an association dedicated to a particular interest or activity.
+ SO WHAT IS THIS SUPPER CLUB?
For us a Supper Club is an association of persons dedicated to the provision, dutch style, of meaningful food and drink, in combination with great company, beautiful ambiance and inspirational ideas.
+ WHAT WOULD THE SUPPER CLUB DO FOR THOSE THAT ATTEND?
The take away? New connections, creative buoyancy, a good time, renewed motivations. And a team of like minded people that can and will possibly serve as accountability partners to you in the persuance of your dreams and passions.
+ WHAT DO WE ENVISION?
We envision a scheduled get together of guests to bring your own dish (BYOD) and partly sponsored dinner event.
+ WHERE WOULD OUR SUPPER CLUB BE HOSTED
Location would vary from event to event. We are open to suggestions and to hosts who have spaces and welcome the idea.
+ ARE YOU A GOOD FIT?
Being a good cook is not required. Being a foodie is not required. Being an Instagram-er is not required. Being a photographer or photography enthusiast is not required. You are a good fit if you want to have a good time, feel inspired and enjoy a multi-course meal.
+ WHAT ELSE?
Apart from the food and drink each invitee is asked to contribute firstly whatever they feel is their unique talent and secondly to make an effort to step out of their comfort zone by trying something different. There will be a pre-selected theme for each event. The theme will dictate the menu and sometimes the dress code.
+ UPCOMING GATHERING?
Tentatively set for the 21st July 2018... Stay tuned for more.
